2017 County GAA Champions

football winners june 2017

 

Congratulations are due to the school Gaelic team who captured the Cumann na mBunscol GAA title in style by overcoming Muff, the Inishowen champions in Glenswilly.  Muff settled best and opened with four unanswered points.  Kilmacrennan responded with a couple of goals and points, leaving a two point margin in our favour at half time.

Aided by the wind, Kilmac setteld well in the second half but were made to work hard by a determined Muff team.  Kilmac though had enough armour in their tanks to complete the task at hand and were worthy winners of the coveted title.

Congratulations to Master Gallagher and his team.

 

Concern in Kilmac as ‘Ireland should leave the EU’ debate stirs

Congrats are due to the school debating team who have qualified for the finals of the Ulster/ Connacht/ Midland counties Concern Debating Finals.

The school qualified for the final, having defeated the County Sligo champions in an event at the Great Northern Hotel in Bundoran on Tuesday, 13th June 2017.  Kilmacrennan NS successfully carried the motion that ‘Social Media is a bad influence on children’.

Our school will face the County Roscommon champions in the final, pencilled in for Bundoran on Tuesday, 20th June.  We face a weightier motion this time as we will oppose the proposal that ‘Ireland should leave the EU!’

Busy times on sporting front!

Kilmacrennan are competing on several sporting fronts as term-end approaches.

The boys gaelic team will compete in the Cumann na mBunscol County Final on Wed 14th June in Glenswilly at 11.30,  while our soccer team will play in the final of the Letterkenny Soccer Cup in Goose Green the following day.

The school Rounders team will play in the Cumann na mBunscol County Final on Friday, 16th June in Convoy.

Good luck to all.
